The current status of natural products from marine fungi and their potential as anti-infective agents
A growing number of marine fungi are the sources of novel and potentially life-saving bioactive secondary metabolites. Here, we have discussed some of these novel antibacterial, antiviral,Expand

Development and evaluation of a DNA-barcoding approach for the rapid identification of nematodes
Free-living nematodes are abundant in all marine habitats, are highly diverse, and can be useful for monitoring anthropogenic impacts on the environment. Despite such attributes, nematodes areExpand

Exploitation of marine algae: biogenic compounds for potential antifouling applications
Marine algae are one of the largest producers of biomass in the marine environment. They produce a wide variety of chemically active metabolites in their surroundings, potentially as an aid toExpand

Evaluation of combined morphological and molecular techniques for marine nematode (Terschellingia spp.) identification
Marine nematodes, which play an important role in many ecosystems, include a number of apparently cosmopolitan taxa that exhibit broad biogeographic ranges even though there is no obvious dispersalExpand

Interannual and cyclone-driven variability in phytoplankton communities of a tropical coastal lagoon.
One of the main challenges in phytoplankton ecology is to understand their variability at different spatiotemporal scales. We investigated the interannual and cyclone-derived variability inExpand

Investigating monsoon and post-monsoon variabilities of bacterioplankton communities in a mangrove ecosystem
In mangrove environments, bacterioplankton communities constitute an important component of aquatic biota and play a major role in ecosystem processes. Variability of bacterioplankton communitiesExpand

Barcoding marine nematodes: an improved set of nematode 18S rRNA primers to overcome eukaryotic co-interference
Nematodes form an important component of many benthic marine ecosystems and DNA barcoding approaches could provide an insight into nematode community composition from different environments globally.Expand

Spatiotemporal distribution and composition of phytoplankton assemblages in a coastal tropical lagoon: Chilika, India
The Asia’s largest lagoon, Chilika, is a shallow water estuary and a designated “Ramsar” site located in the east coast of India. The spatiotemporal diversity of phytoplankton based on the monthlyExpand

Exploitation of archived marine nematodes — a hot lysis DNA extraction protocol for molecular studies
Museums and other research organizations around the world have large numbers of formalin‐fixed marine invertebrates in their collections. These have the potential to be a valuable resource forExpand

Combined morphological and molecular analysis of individual nematodes through short‐term preservation in formalin
Small metazoans such as marine nematodes are increasingly identified using both molecular and morphological techniques. Formalin is the preferred fixative for morphological analysis but specimensExpand
